CPAC to Hold Hearing on El Salvador's MoU Extension Request

The government of El Salvador has asked for an extension of its Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the United States.

The MoU would authorize five more years of U.S. import controls under the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act to protect jeopardized archaeological and ethnological heritage originating from the central American nation.

The Cultural Property Advisory Committee (CPAC) will consider El Salvador's request during a public hearing that is scheduled for October 7 at 10:30 a.m. at 2200 C St. NW., Washington, DC (pictured here). To attend the hearing, call the State Department at 202-632-6301.
